Breathtaking Bowcombe is a fairly energetic after work walk aimed at adults.

Carisbrooke High St Car park

Description 

Breathtaking Bowcombe is a fairly energetic after work walk aimed at adults. We’ll puff our way up the Tennyson trail from Carisbrooke, but it will be worth it for the stunning views across the Island. Coming down to the Blacksmiths arms we’ll spend a few minutes looking at Glyn Robert’s sculptured tale on a plaque outside the pub, then make our way down yet further to Reads Farm and Alvington Manor Farm before returning to Carisbrooke.
